Format: Paperback
I am highly impressed by this book. I teach language arts to elementary and middle school children part time, and this book is wonderful to help them understand the core concept of the fairytale and encourage them to write their own stories. The book has wonderful examples that are easy to follow and great ideas to encourage your child or student to venture into the world of writing and reading. Perfect solution for the reluctant child.

This book is a terrific resource if you are teaching young writers how to write their own fairy tale. My students loved the illustration and the key points/elements that the author numbered throughout the book. This helped them to make sure they included those elements when creating their own fairy tale. I can't wait to read the other books in this series.

For our Fairy Tale unit my students are asked to write their own fairy tale and this definitely has made it clearer and easier for them to understand the steps involved. Can't wait to use it next school year!

This was the perfect book for helping my students transition from reading Fairy Tales to writing their own. I am thinking about buying more of the books in this series.

This book is a must-have when teaching kids how to write fairy tales!! The kids loved the book and we ended up creating a graphic organizer with the 13 tools for writing a great fairy tale to help plan our stories!!

Using it currently with my elementary students, after completing a unit of comparing Fairy Tales from different cultures and points of view. My students really like this approach to writing their own.

My students loved this book. The "tools" listed on fairytale text features were incredibly helpful for students to refrence on writing fractured and then original fairy tales.
